Instead of school relocation, enclosure in the offing

Goenshari Primary school which was established in 1991 was planned to be relocated because the Mo Chhu on its side swells up in monsoon but now, the plans have been cancelled. Instead, the school will be upgraded with boarding facilities and protected by an enclosure.Students from nearby villages had to walk for one to two hours to reach the school and temporary huts  were being  built by some parents  for their children  as the school provides meals except dinner. Goenshari Gewog Administration Officer Sonam Gyeltshen said that after meetings with the public, the dzongkhag authorities decided to stick to the same location.  (Dawa Zangmo)
